Has been a true honor being able to help in the creation of this very special version of Road America for Grand Prix Legends, and to learn first hand a little bit of what goes into making a track.

Beyond the technical skills and knowledge necessary, it is up to the builders to persevere with a level of dedication to detail and to excellence that raises the bar to its highest possible level.

Congratulations to all other Road America build team members who contributed their special skills.

What an effort and what a result!
A beautiful work of art and way too much fun.

Thanks to everyone!



Attached pic...track consultant Bo driving the #24 Townsend Special around the Carousel in 1959. Think it would pass tech inspection today? Bo said they didn't call it the Carousel back then, they called it "over by the gravel pit."

:D
Drivers, start your engines. Wuhooooo!

Thank you, John, for your dedication, stories and the many details that you provided the team during 'construction'.  :)

**********************************************************************************
As a small "Easter Egg', if you have the '66 Can-Am Mod installed, when you go to Road America you will have a race/track specific carset for the 1966 Road America '500'.
This carset is courtesy of G.Spinning and myself.  (watch this space)

"Also a 1966 USRRC option for the page1 and event of the menu is in its own zip file."  :)

As a whole package, just brilliant. The extra details are great!

John - the track looks very fresh there in '59, cool to hear about Bo's feedback and your research in consulting the track VP! The carousel for example feels just like it does in iRacing with their track scan.

Can we get this onto virtualr.net, like we did the mod preview videos? :)

Yes, it was definitly worth the long wait! What a wonderful track. And so very real.
This shows that a great track in 1966 is still great in 2017.

I just dipped into the 2.27's in the CA66's and in the 2.17's in the CA 71's.
Mmm.. need some more practice, don't I?

Thank you very much artists/authors.Grazie und Vielen Danke!!!

Appreciate the comments addressed to me, thanks guys.

Really it was my thrill to be a part of it.

What a beautiful track. That's what amazes me on every lap.

Its like watching sweet cream sugar butter pastries.

:D

Road America v.1 for Grand Prix Legends is a work of art for sure.


So, here's to Remy and ginetto, cheers and best wishes.

:cheers:
